    What to Expect
    Leave your Healy area accommodations via a climate-controlled van, and journey away from the lights of town to search for the Northern Lights. The area around Denali makes an ideal spot for stargazing and catching the sometimes elusive Aurora Borealis. Your Alaskan guide will provide commentary and conversation on the area’s unique history, formidable climate, dynamic geography, and separate scientific facts from fictional myth. Learn all about Mother Nature’s fireworks display from a local guide, sip a warm drink, and learn how the Lights are the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere. This bucket list experience lets you hop out at select locations with your camera in hand with pointers from your guide. The Northern Lights are visible only during the winter months (September to April) and sightings are not guaranteed.

    Location was good, about 30mins north of Denali, no light pollution - exactly what was required. Coffee/hot chocolate was helpful in the cold weather. Only minus: pickup was not available at our lodge, it wasn't planned well for us. Slightly overpriced.

    It is definitely likely. The Aurora activity can first be spotted in mid August and the chances just keep getting better as the winter draws near. It is never guaranteed but is definitely possible! I personally have seen the... More
